With this odd frost then unseasonable warm, my basil went nuts and grew like mad. Whats the best plan? Freeze, dry?

I would rinse. pat dry and freeze flat. Or if it is for pesto, make the pesto and freeze it..stays well for a long time.

I think you will be pleased. Nothing like pulling out some of your own pesto for pasta in Feburary.
